Daycare & Preschool News
Happy Fall Y’all! As outside temperatures hopefully begin to drop, our level of activities starts to increase! We have several events coming up next month, starting off with the Operation Christmas Child kick-off on October 9. Students throughout the school will get information on how to fill their boxes to send the love of Jesus around the world.
On October 5, we are joining the elementary students in their D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) Day by wearing pajamas to school! Elementary students will be coming around and reading to our classes. Due to the 4K field trip to Disney on Ice that day, we do ask that 4K students not wear pajamas to school.
We are closed October 8 for Columbus Day and staff training. Please join us October 13 for the CBS Annual Fall Festival! Ticket information will go out soon. You will also see more information about the CBS Spirit Week and Book Fair.
On October 26, we will have an additional dress-up day: Princess and Superhero Day.

Elementary School News
Elementary students celebrated the birthday of John Chapman, otherwise known as Johnny Appleseed, on September 26. Known as the pioneer who introduced apple trees to parts of the United States during the turn of the nineteenth century, Johnny is remembered by students across our nation for his kindness and generosity.
Kindergarten and first-grade students marked the occasion by learning the history of Johnny Appleseed, performing experiments with apples, making homemade applesauce, and eating lots of apple-themed treats! Pictured is Mrs. Bodie’s Kindergarten class, dressed up for the special occasion.

Middle & High School News
It is fall, there is a chill in the air, leaves are changing, and fireplaces are warming up... somewhere! But not here at Curtis! The Middle School and High School students are working hard to meet academic expectations as we close in on the end of the first grading period.
On October 17, our Middle School science students will head to Plant Vogtle where they will be introduced to innovative and historical examples of energy production and use. They will encounter many educational exhibits which focus on using nuclear energy to generate electricity. Our goal is to help the students understand the nuances of generating electricity, and how it affects our lives, the environment, and our community. The High School students are enjoying extracurricular activities such as yearbook, student council, and Beta Club.

Our senior-class advisor, Mrs. Williams, has placed our seniors on their individual academic tracts to insure they have all of their credits for graduation. Miss Reed is working with our underclassmen, sharing advice on study and social skills. If you have a concern or question about the academic progress of your student please do not hesitate to call the school and ask to speak to one of these ladies.
We want to encourage you to attend the Parent-Teacher Conferences later this month. You will have the opportunity to speak with our teachers, guidance counselor, and principals.
